While iam using forget password ! at word press login it shows !!! The e-mail could not be sent. Possible reason: your host may have disabled the mail() function.

so where can i change mail() function ??

Thank you

You will need to speak with your hosting provider to see about having email turned on. Some will charge extra and will need you to authorize the additional cost. Others like wpengine do not offer email services so you would need to setup a separate email service.

so, we could not able to change and add our eMail id at word press files !! ?

if your server does not have php mail() running, then you can instead use a third party mail service like SendGrid (my favorite). There are plenty of plugins that you can install to use SendGrid instead of the server's mail function.

yes thank you andrew , can we use Send Grid for our local hosting !! also ?
